I have always greatly appreciated the artistic nature of arranging. Using lines, shapes, textures, and colors, we use our individual style and artistic voice to create something beautiful and unique from plants and flowers. This is the kind of approach I bring to my work: whether it is for a bouquet or vase arrangement, wedding floral proposal, terrarium, or a potted plant, the task is an opportunity to create art.

Jeanmarie helped me to learn the proper way to hold the cello and the bow. She watched carefully to be sure I maintained that throughout the lesson. I am pleased that she is going to be sure I learn to play the cello well to prevent injuries. She also gave me some very basic bowing and finger exercises to practice this first week so I begin to build correct muscle memory before I go on to working with sheet music.

"I started taking lessons with Dipankar in November. At that point my rating was 1200-1300 on Chess.com. I have improved my rating to be around 1500.

Dipankar teaches in a way that makes you think about different positions and different strategies as if they were occurring in a game. He doesn't just give you the solution, he makes you talk him through your logic, and then points out any flaws / improvements that there may be. Ultimately, in a dynamic way, he has been able to improve my game.

I came to realize that the main reasons I was losing games was either an early tactical mistake, or a blunder mid game. Dipankar showed me how to think through each move, and some common problems to avoid.

I look forward to continuing lessons with Dipankar, and continuing to grow my game / rating."

"I had a wonderful time in my first lesson. Erin was extremely knowledgeable and also very friendly. She was able to turn her camera around so that I could see what she was doing really clearly, and she explained things in a way that was easy for me to understand. She was very patient with me, as I'm a slow knitter, and was able to tell when I made mistakes and helped me correct them. I would absolutely recommend Erin to anyone looking to get started, wanting to learn more complicated projects, and/or needing help with specific questions."
